Irish singer, songwriter and composer Julie Feeney, former member of the Irish Chamber Choir and winner of the Choice Music Prize in 2006 for her debut ‘pop’ album 13 Songs, will perform off-Broadway for 10 nights, from April 25 to May 6.

Feeney will perform as part of a music and theatrical show at the Irish Arts Centre, to be co-directed by PS122’s Vallejo Gantner. Feeney will perform each night with a small orchestra of strings, singers, recorders, sticks, guitar, keyboards, and trumpet.

Feeney’s 2011 RTÉ Lyric FM programme with Jack L, High Fidelity: a century of recorded song, is currently being repeated on RTÉ Radio One on Sunday evenings at 11pm. Feeney recently crowd-sourced funding for the recording of her new album, which will be her third, from fundit.ie. She is currently working on an opera commission, to be premiered in 2013.

Tickets for the New Yorkshows are $18 and $20. Further information and booking at irishartscenter.org.
